in employment insurance ben filt fits and deal with unemployment insurance cuts. >> so the question is, could they actually get that many republicans to vote for this package that the president is calling for? >> but politically, what he is doing is essentially saying this is the plan that i'm putting forth. let's get it through the senate and if it fails, it will fail in the republican-led house. essentially having rely cans having owned that failure. >> i didn't hear also about the debt ceiling that the treasury secretary was just saying we need to raise pretty much any day now. is this going to be the next couple of months in terms of this debate? does the white house have a strategy for dealing with both in the next phase? >> well, they're quite clear that there's probably just too much at this point to put that in this initial package, specifically the debt ceiling. that they're saying there's probably no way that they're going to be able to address that right now. they know that that's sort of the next big hurdle that they're going to have to face, once they deal with the immediate issu

: is there any possibility ben bernanke and tim geithner could both be replaced? from what i have read, they both have a background or some dealings with the basics and will street. my impression is they are in bed with big banks in wall street and favor them. their policies have always favored those guys. that may be part of the reason they were never held accountable for the things that happened five in 2008. guest: there is no doubt they did work together on the tarp legislation during the financial collapse of late 2008. ben bernanke was the chairman of the federal reserve. tim geithner it was the head of the federal reserve. i cannot remember whether ben bernanke's term is coming up in 2014. there is talk that tim geithner may be the next fed chair. it is quite likely we will have a new fed chair some time during obama's second term. host: when you say chatter, is this the white house getting that out to reporters? guest: like wall street, people talk. if ben bernanke were to leave the fed, tim geithner would be a natural candidate. it would be natural he would be considered. whether he woul

places to eat like a local. our senior international correspondent ben wedeman's in cairo to sample. >> reporter: i'm ben wedeman's in cairo, egypt. if you're looking for something that's cheap, filling, nutritious and quintessentially egyptian, or so they say, abu tare is the place to go. there's no reason here to ask for a menu, because there's only one item they serve here, and that is really, the working man's lunch here in egypt. kushari. it's a very simple dish with rice, pasta, lentils, tomato sauce, a sort of garlic and vinegar sauce, and as you can see, they do a very brisk business here. now, i said before that kushari isn't quintessentially an egyptian food, i discovered it's not. it actually coming from an indian dish that's composed of rice, lentils, fried onions and chopped vegetables. apparently introduced to egypt by the british army. so what we have here is the basic ingredients of the kushari, and what you do is add a bit of lemon to it. and some extra chickpeas, and what i like the most is the extra fried onions, which really do add to this dish. plus, the tomato

: isn't that a counterargument? ben bernanke prints money and $45 billion of mortgages every month and breaks down 3.5% or something like that. surely that continues, surely that is a bright spot. >> if that happens and we have the weak dollar we will see foreign buyers coming in to the market. stuart: you mentioned luxury homes. they are selling well, multimillion-dollar homes. you did an rticle on that. >> lots of articles on that. this housing recovery, i throw the r word out there with caution but what we have seen in housing creates concern, the very low end doing well, distressed properties for first-time home buyers and high end doing well especially with billionaires' who are plowing their money into real estate. stuart: foreigners are buying a lot of this. >> you can -- we have been seeing a lot of argentinian and venezuelans and middle easterners and koreans coming into the market and chinese. stuart: canadians. gerri: this recovery is no hand mirrors. it is not strong and inventories at small levels here, these are professionals in many cases who are buying. at the end
was not cool on the skis. tough talk. here i am with ben willis, and we talked about the market, but the number one question, what's everybody saying about the fiscal cliff? >> new year's resolution is never to have to say those words again. >> oh, come on, what do people think? what's the reaction in the market? >> traders are tired of the hold. what you are witnessing now is political theater. the president getting on the plane, coming home early, on and on, just get it over with. that's what you are elected to do. just do your job. we're tired of it. >> pushed back into january? >> may have patch work done causing a resolution, but the market continues to say we believe it's going to happen because the fact of the matter is if it doesn't happen, the market turns ugly really fast. >> all right. there's obviously the belief something's got to happen but better be sooner than later. >> ben's got to have a better new year's resolution than that. >> i like it. that and eat more broccoli. >> he's laughing because it's the truth. >> thank you, nicole. >> i have to think of the new year's resolution

. >> there's something fascinating to all of this. ben bernanke gave this situation the name fiscal cliff which sounds very dramatic and very scary. but what it is is an act of congress that they actually voted for. 174 republicans voted for this law that would then take effect on january 1st with all these spending cuts in it, and democrats -- 95 democrats in the house voted for it, 74 votes for it in the united states senate, and now congress is afraid of actually going through something that it voted for to occur on january 1st because it all feels too dramatic to them. and so there's something very peculiar. the crisis that congress is facing is can they undo something that they voted for, and can they undo it by new year's eve? >> it's irony and paradox upon irony. remember the reason the fiscal cliff is supposed to be so dangerous and the reason why so many people in washington are worried about the fiscal cliff is it's too much deficit reduction too fast. so all of this takes place against a debate about how to reduce the budget deficit. that's why you get into this theater of the

"the willis report" is next, have a great thursday. gerri: tonight get ready, folks. we arwe're going over the fiscal cliff and lawmakers are just picturing about it, they are not trying to fix it. we have some great ideas to fix the fiscal cliff blues. try flying first class and don't pay for it. welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i am gerri willis. tonight congress is pushing america up a fiscal cliff of its own making. president obama and the senate back in washington today trying to get some kind of a deal done, that is what they say, but nothing will likely come in time. harry reid spent the day moaning about how bad of a speaker john boehner is good the house is set to return sunday afternoon just one day before the end of the year. nearly 90% of americans will be hit with $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts. as we head off a cliff, what can you and your family expect come january 2? president of the american action reform joins me now. so,
on ben gi sai? we'll never know the truth, will we?" i think we will. it may take time, but we will. that leave off. gerri willis is up nexto explain all this for you. have a great weekend, everybody. gerri: hello, everybody, president obama calling on congress just moments ago asking to avoid the fiscal cliff. he said he is moderately optimistic that a deal could be done by december 31. congressional leaders are working on crafting a bill. certainly no grand bargain here that would improve entitlements. if they can't get a deal, the president has told harry reid to put the white house proposals up for an up or down vote. the details just keep on coming out. with us now are two guests. first, we are going to go rich edson. he is here with the very latest. tell us what you made of the president's comments. he was very direct. reporter: he ws. and now he passes on to the senate. senate majority leader harry reid, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. they are trying to come up with something that can pass the house and the senate. the president laid out a proposal earlier this eveni
